Police Say Activision Arming Locals Unwise
Officials at Bear Springs, Arkansas have expressed their concern regarding a promotional deal that offers night-vision goggles with the purchase of a special edition Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Sheriff Wayne Baker gave his personal opinion on why it was a bad idea:
"My concern is not that people have access to the equipment, but that they're being given away to people in my community who are positively cuckoo. Take my brother Dale, for instance; he's a scary guy when you get a get a couple drinks of whiskey in him. I remember we were down in San Luis when these two kids from Texas made a bet over the pinball machine. Of course, Dale lost and those kids got his money, so Dale got angry and left. An hour and a half later, he came back with an AK-47 assault rifle and shot that pinball machine dead. He's got it mounted on the wall of his trailer. Now do you really want a guy like that having access to something like night-vision?"
One wonders what the Bear Springs police department would have thought of Activision's original proposal to include a live hand grenade had been accepted. Thankfully, that logic was been questioned by the only sober executive at during the brainstorming meeting/toga party.
